There’s this saying I’ve heard before and never gave it much thought. That is, until my mama said it. She said “I have more time behind me than I have in front of me.” Not exactly something I want to think about when it comes to my mom. Since the day she said it, I can’t stop thinking about that phrase.
My husband and I were talking one day and I mentioned this phrase. I said truthfully, the same could be said of us. If biblically speaking we get 70 years on this earth, I’m halfway through! WTH!? That made me really start thinking. I’ve already been in grind mode as far as going after things I want and dreaming bigger. Now I feel like I need to take it to another level.
I started out this year with things I wanted to achieve. I have been doing pretty good on those goals. I’ve had to slow WAY down (for a good cause) since having my little munchkin but I’m still making progress.
Somehow, it’s August and the year is nearly over. When it is over, I don’t want to be kicking myself about how I let myself down. There is SO much I want to do, see and be. If I can remember how time flies and that it is truly limited, I think that will be enough to keep me motivated.
How about you? Is there a thought or phrase that puts things into perspective for you? What’s your motivation?
